Ahhhh the new year. It always starts off so fresh, new and exciting. So many lists! So many goals! I was really kicking it at the beginning of the month. I'd booked my standing art shows and included a new spring one. I figured out my theme for my July show and took lots of photos to support the mood I wanted to paint. My original little inks got an extension to sell at Polish House & Home in Colborne, Ontario.
Each day I am losing more and more light in my studio and it's all because of snow. Lots of snow. It's been a bit of a snowpocalypse lately, snow fell here for about 13 hrs last night into this morning. As you can see, my windows are almost buried in it. Despite that lack of natural light I have been working on a few new paintings. I'll give you a sneak peek below with some detail photos (excuse the quality). I have two deadlines coming up that I'm working towards but will post the full finished paintings after that.
P.S. It's fun to say snowpocalypse.
The holidays are over and everyone is back to work and school today. Well, not quite. Today turned out to be a snow day here with freezing rain and a flash freeze. It seems fitting to tell you about my painting called The Window (see the Gallery tab for a closer look).
The inspiration for this painting came from a a day that we woke up to a coating of freezing rain. No, this wasn't the Ice Storm of 2013, just a regular 'ole freezing drizzle day. I painted the cold, grey world that we saw out of our window while we were nice and cozy warm inside. I hope I captured that feeling and with wind chill warnings in Southern Ontario today, I hope you are staying warm and cozy too.
Phew! The group art show 'Seasons Past' is now over. It was a lot of work and a lot of fun with many friends (new and old) stopping by over the course of the day. I wanted to thank-you all for your support, advice, comments, and purchases. I hope you enjoy your new pieces of art as much as I enjoyed creating them. I have updated the Gallery page for you with the new work and pricing. It's not too late to purchase for Christmas, if you live in my area you can pick up from me or I can deliver to you. It is however too late for me to ship. Once again, thank-you.
I will keep you updated on my latest work and perhaps some insight into my creative process.
